By Bill Schmick,
04:33PM / Thursday, November 08, 2018
True to form, the opposition party regained control of the House, while the ruling party, in this case the GOP, retained control of the Senate. If history is any guide, this means that little in the way of legislation will be coming out of Congress for the next two years.   In the past, investors and the stock market alike did better than you might expect under this kind of political paralysis. That's because financial markets abhor the unknown. Given the unpredictability of politics and legislation, investors are far more content with inaction than action, unless of course, those actions are favorable to the markets or the economy.   Take for example, the tax cut of 2018.

Andrea Harrington and her family the night of the primary. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — It was Thursday, March 1, 2018, when the body of a woman was found in a nearby wooded area.
